Irish novelist, short-story writer, biographer, essayist and critic--Bram Stoker was born in Dublin on November 8, 1847. Although he claimed that the idea for his classic tale of Count Dracula came to him in a nightmare, Stoker was doubtless influenced in part by Arminius Vambéry, the celebrated Hungarian adventurer and folklore expert who introduced him to the vampire legends of Eastern Europe. The author wrote several other works of gothic fiction and romances. He died in London in 1912.

Jonathan Harker is a hardworking young man. He travels to Transylvania for a meeting with the mysterious Count Dracula. After sleeping in Dracula's castle, Jonathan notices some very strange things about his host — his reflection does not appear in mirrors, he sleeps in a wooden coffin, and he crawls down the castle wall like a spider. Soon, Jonathan makes the grim discovery that the Count is no ordinary man. In fact, he's not a man at all — Count Dracula is a vampire!
Adapted from the classic tale of horror and suspense, this book is easy to read!
